Dixon and Alonso lead Moto2™, Moto3™ Jerez Test timesheets

The British and Colombian riders were quickest as both classes complete an important day of private testing in Andalucia

A day after the MotoGP™ Official Test, the majority of Moto2™ and Moto3™ teams took part in an Official Test at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto and emerging quickest from both classes were CFMOTO Aspar Team duo Jake Dixon and David Alonso.


In the final session of the day, Dixon set a 1:40.394 - a new unofficial lap record - as the British rider, plus the Red Bull KTM Ajo and Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP riders, got to grips with the WP Suspension they're racing for the first time in 2024.

Dixon’s time was 0.184s quicker than second place Somkiat Chantra (Idemitsu Honda Team Asia), with Tony Arbolino (Elf Marc VDS Racing Team) third overall as the Italian looks to find crucial gains to get his title chase up and running.


As he was all weekend at the Spanish GP, Alonso was fastest in the lightweight class. The Colombian clocked a 1:43.948, with his closest challenger on the timesheets being Sunday’s winner Collin Veijer (Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP) – the Dutchman’s best effort standing at a 1:44.273.

Veijer was the only rider to lap within half a second of Alonso, with third place going the way of Luca Lunetta (SIC58 Squadra Corse) – the Italian’s personal best being a 1:44.658.

The riders and teams will now pack up and head home before switching into French GP mode next week.
